Contact: Laura Monasterio Morales,

Following a second external evaluation and subsequent review by the EC, we are pleased to announce the 5 bilateral Networks that have been selected for the INCOBRA Call for Bilateral Networks.

There was a very high standard of proposals received and we are delighted that there was such a lot of interest in the Call and therefore in enhancing synergies between Europe and Brazil.  We look forward to the selected networks making the most of this opportunity, helping to forge a stronger relationship between the two regions.

For the networks who were not successful on this occasion, INCOBRA wishes you all the best in your endeavours and we hope to stay in contact for any further opportunities that may arise.

For any further information, kindly contact

Please see below the list of the selected networks (and attached for the complete list of proposals).
